Billy Piper, Senior Vice President

Billy Piper joined the firm in January of 2011 after nearly 20 years working on Capitol Hill. Immediately after graduating from the University of Richmond Billy joined the office of Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky as a special assistant and served in a variety of capacities over the next many years. From late 2002 until his departure, he held the position of Chief of Staff for Leader McConnell. In this role he oversaw McConnell's staff in Washington, D.C. and Kentucky, as well as serving as his principal political advisor.

During his tenure with McConnell, Billy was involved in a variety of important legislative and political accomplishments. For several years, he led the senator's efforts to draft, pass and implement legislation dealing with the complex issues surrounding elimination of the chemical weapons stockpile at the Bluegrass Army Depot and the cleanup of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant. He also served as a crucial liaison between Leader McConnell and the National Republican Senatorial Committee, as well as directly with campaigns and candidates across the country. This was just one of the many reasons that McConnell referred to Billy as the "indispensable man."

The Kentucky native graduated from the University of Richmond. He and his family live in McLean, Virginia.
